Boundaries Task Force process update provided to Board
At its Feb. 13 meeting, Superintendent Dr. Scott Thompson provided an update regarding the Boundaries Task Force process.
A group of community members representing all schools in the district has been meeting to develop proposed adjustments to school boundaries in order to better meet the needs of the community, and to alleviate overcrowding at several schools.
Alignment of elementary & junior high schools with feeder high schools
Smaller class sizes
Reduce bus travel times
Minimal disruption to families
Subdivisions not split up
Efficient use of school buildings
The committee has worked through one preliminary proposal that would satisfy many of the community priorities, and is now starting to create at least two additional proposals. Once complete, all proposals will be shared with the community for feedback before final adjustments are made, and the proposals are shared with the Board of Education for its consideration. The group's goal is to share proposals with the community late this spring.
If approved by the Board of Education, the earliest any change in school boundaries could be implemented would be fall of 2020. Continue to follow the work of the task force by "liking" its Facebook page.
